Notes on the Geography of Sri Lanka: Kandy and the Temple of the Tooth: Photo 9

world pictures Sri Lanka: Kandy and the Temple of the Tooth

The original temple stands in a courtyard.   Build of wood, though supported by granite columns, it rests on a granite-block platform.  The stairs have a semicircular moonstone at the base but lack the classic guardstones characteristic of staircases at Anuradhapura and Polonnuwara. Old photographs, such as one in Henry Cave's The Book of Ceylon (c. 1908, p. 333) show the two-story temple in a wider courtyard, rimmed with one-story buildings.
